Ibrahim Mahlab was sworn in as new Egypt Prime Minister on 25 February 2014. He is a former member of Hosni Mubarak's political party.
Mahlab was the housing minister in the previous administration. He will head Egypt's sixth government since the 2011 uprising that toppled the autocratic Mubarak.
Ibrahim Mahlab will replace Hazem el-Beblawi government.
He is the former CEO of Arab Contractors, one of the region's largest construction firms.
He is expected to lead an interim government at least until the election of a new president.
